Hello Martin,

I have reviewed this document as part of the Operational directorate's ongoing
effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG. These comments
were written with the intent of improving the operational aspects of the IETF

The document is about an extension to TLS (record_size_limit) allowing
endpoints to negotiate the maximum size of protected records. The document also
deprecates a previous extension max_fragment_length.

The different scenarios (whether endpoints support this option or not) as well
as behavior of future versions of TLS are specified. Section 5 also describes
the behavior when endpoints use the proposed and the deprecated TLS options.

Nits in section 5: "MUST ignore *and* "max_fragment_length""

This is a short document and IMHO all operational issues are well documented
and correct.
